The top case sure adds a lot of heft to the typing sound when using the solenoid. This project has also taught me that beam springs are very very sensitive switches. When I assembled the switches I noticed that not all of the springs which are riveted to the slider were 100% flat. Now I can feel each and every one of those non perfect switches when typing.
The controller is also super sensitive and I have to jam an old keycap to put pressure on the connector. That way all the rows and columns get recognised. I still have to come up with a plan to retrobright the keycaps but other than that I think I'm finally done
I watched one video where the guy uses vacuum packing machine to enclose the caps in the H2O2 solution and puts the bags in a pot with a sous vide machine at 50°C. I will try that one I meet someone who has the packing machine. I also have to retrobright my Acer 6012 to give it a new look but that will have to wait till summer. There is hardly any UV light here during the winter at 60°60'N and it's cold so the retrobrighting would take a lot longer than the sun shines.
Now I just feel a little empty inside. I have acquired all the keyboards I want and don't know what to do. The super rare stuff like SE/FI layout beam springs with colored caps, NIB beam springs and SKCM Blues and stuff like that I don't think I'll ever come across in my life For the record I now have :
